Pomobaro is a simple menu bar application that helps break work down into manageable intervals. The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. These intervals are named Pomodoros.

- Slick and simple UI
- Desktop notifications when it's time to start or stop working
- Set custom work intervals, short break intervals, and long break intervals

Order of Intervals:
1.) Work Interval - typically 25 minutes (1 pomodoro)
2.) Short Break Interval - typically 5 minutes
3.) Work Interval - typically 25 minutes (2 pomodoros)
4.) Short Break Interval - typically 5 minutes
5.) Work Interval - typically 25 minutes (3 pomodoros)
6.) Short Break Interval - typically 5 minutes
7.) Work Interval - typically 25 minutes (4 pomodoros)

Work and rewards - Using Pomodoro

This app is great! Without intrusion into your work space, this app helps you manage your time so you work the most effectively, take a break and then be on to the next interval. The animation lets you keep easy track of how much you have accomplished. Simple to use and great time management app. Nice to know how productive you can be!

I like to work in coffee shops and do my best to ignore everything besides my work. When I do this i often forget to take a break and go outside! This app really helps to increase productivity by forcing you to work smarter not harder. Maybe if you added rewards like a star animation at the end would make it more fun for all ages!

Best Pomodoro App for Mac

This is the pomodoro app I’ve been waiting for! The UI is clean and responsive, and it offers all the customization options I need. I can only imagine how many hours it took to get that count down circle animation just right. Only criticism I have is that the app logo kinda looks like a dong.
